It’s being widely reported that former NFL quarterback and 30-year-old Mets prospect Tim Tebow will open the 2018 baseball season with the Double-A Binghamton
Mets Rumble Ponies.
The Trenton Thunder wasted no time trying to capitalize on the college football star’s two visits this June:
For those who might need a little more motivation:
- Friday, June 8th is a Kevin Youklis bobblehead giveaway (Trenton used to be a Boston Red Sox affiliate before the Evil Empire took over)
- Saturday, June 9th is a fireworks night
- Sunday, June 10th is a day game and a Greg Bird youth jersey giveaway
- Tuesday, June 19th is a “kids eat free” and dollar hot dog game
- Wednesday, June 20th is “Wine Wednesday,” whatever that entails
- Thursday, June 21st is another fireworks game and a “Hometown Hereos” card set giveaway
And hey, if you’re more excited about seeing whichever Yankee prospects land in Double-A this year, your first chance to meet them is Trenton’s Welcome North Open House on April 3rd.
